Twinkle, twinkle, my blog got a star!

I’ve been given a star!

Wow! As if I wasn’t in the Christmas spirit already… now I’ve been awarded a shiny, twinkly star by the lovely Vikki Thompson.  Yes, Vikki thinks I’m deserving of a Blog of the Year 2012 award.

I say ~ Awesome, and Thank You, Vikki!

What is the Blog of the Year 2012 Award?

Here are the description and rules, which I have lifted straight from the originator’s very cool blog ~ hope that’s ok, and thank you!

Do you know a blog that deserves an award? Do you have special blogs that you love to read? Which blogs do you bookmark and follow? Would you like to give them an award this year?

Then the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award is for you!

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Awardhttp://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

My Thank You goes back to the blogger who nominated me…

Give it up for the lovely Vikki Thompson at The View Outside! (Vikki has collected six stars, by the way ~ she totally rocks!)

…and I’d like to pass the honour on to some of my favourite blogs:

Tobi at Forget The Housework, I’m Reading

Kate at Me, My Books, and I

Lou Graham

Nancy S. Thompson

Nova at My Seryniti

Rea Book Review

The fabulous Romaniacs

Anneli at Words from Anneli

Wishing you all a starry, twinkly and happy Christmas and… keep blogging through 2013!
